Scalix email/calendaring turns 10, mates with Evolution
Scalix Corp., which makes open-source enterprise email/calendaring products for Linux desktops, made two announcements Tuesday. It released Scalix 10, the latest version of its bread-and-butter email server software. It also released Scalix Connect for Evolution, an open-source connector that enables use of the Novell Evolution email client on Scalix servers.
Scalix 10 primarily solves the problem of scheduling meetings with users on multiple platforms and across organizational boundaries, the company says. Using open source iCal Exchange software, Scalix 10 enables cross-platform calendaring -- providing transparent exchange of meeting requests and responses between Scalix servers and email systems, such as Microsoft Exchange, Notes/Domino, and GroupWise, the company said.
Scalix 10 is available as both the advanced Enterprise Edition and the free, unlimited-use, Community Edition.
Key improvements in Scalix 10, as listed by the company, include:
